Kenny G at One World Theatre. His lite-jazz is often a target for critics and hipsters, but the Grammy-decorated multimillion-selling saxophonist is a consummate showman. When I saw him live many years ago on a diverse awards show bill in Seattle that also included Alice in Chains and Sir Mix-a-Lot, his performance stood out for its professionalism and grace. $110-$15o. 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. 7701 Bee Caves Road. — P.B.
